Sea Glass Shoulder Cozy
We hope you will enjoy crocheting this soft, lightweight shoulder cozy. Toss it on over a tank or tee when you go out to beachcomb for sea glass while on vacation. Wear the shoulder hug in too-chilly air conditioned spaces or evenings out in the summertime.
The yarn is a luxurious blend of silk and super wash Merino, hand dyed by Trippin’ with Dixie Fiber Co., for Knitting from the Heart for the 2023 Minnesota Yarn
Shop Hop.
Optional beading adds sparkle, texture and a little weight to the cozy to give it an even lovelier drape.
The easy stitch pattern is meant to resemble waves in the sea and sea glass on the beach. The beads are pops of sunlight reflecting off the tops of the waves. We hope you have fun with it. Happy Hopping!
